Roads were restricted in the area, and shuttles to the Capitol were available for guests parking at the Arizona State Fairgrounds at McDowell Road and 19th Avenue.

Ducey, a Republican, has said he will wait until after McCain's burial to name a successor.

"John has created a long line of people that are coming after you", he said. This will be to honor all whose lives were lost during the Vietnam War, which has great significance for the late McCain.

McCain's wife Cindy and her sons Jack and Jimmy, dressed in formal military attire, received McCain's body ahead of the formal ceremony. In addition, his colleagues, national officials and worldwide leaders will attend.

The memorial service will include tributes, readings and musical performances, including a tribute from former Vice President Joe Biden.

While former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush are scheduled to deliver eulogies this weekend at McCain's funeral, Trump was not invited.
